U.S. Census

The U.S. Census Bureau recently released the 2009 Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE). These estimates are used to calculate school year 2011-2012 Title I allocations.

From the preliminary poverty estimates below, Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) can find out if they will have more or less eligibility for Title I funds in school year 2011-2012. However, these preliminary estimates do not include other non-census factors (like foster, neglected and delinquent counts) used to calculate Title I allocations.

There are 4 levels of Title I grants: Basic, Concentration, Targeted and Education Finance Incentive Grants (EFIG). Each level has eligibility criteria that the school, LEA and/or state must meet in order to qualify for the grant. The Title I funds are allocated through statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.
